This is a pretty good source, there is a more pumped up sbd source but the bass is oversatuated...

Check this show out if you hadn't before...old timers recognize this one as one of the true classics of the 1974 Wall of Sound period..China>Rider is fantastic, perhaps the best pre retirement Wharf Rats, great Peggy-O, but the Truckin>Jam>Mind Left Body>NFA>GDTRFB is a truly outstanding sequence...wow...love this show...also contains perhaps Donna's worst musical moment with the band as she unleashes an unholy scream during Scarlet Begonias, perhaps a harbinger of Weirs slide playing in the years to follow...

Set 1
Mississippi Half Step, Mexicali Blues, Big Railroad Blues, Black Throated Wind, Scarlet Begonias, Beat It On Down The Line, Loose Lucy, Money Money, China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider Promised Land

Set 2
Bertha-> Greatest Story Ever Told, Weather Report Suite Prelude-> Weather Report Suite Part 1-> Let It Grow-> Wharf Rat, Big River, Peggy-O, Truckin'-> Mind Left Body Jam-> Not Fade Away-> Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad-> One More Saturday Night

E: U.S. Blues

Hey Stratocaster;
Everything you mentioned plus-
Always a fan of the full Weather Report Suite
A rare Money, Money in the first set. (Song may not be politically correct but it is hot!!!)
And yes the China Rider on its heels is just right.

"A rare Money, Money in the first set."

I've always kinda liked this little ditty. This is a really nice version: crisp separation, Phil loud and clear, Donna even adds a nice layer.

I know there are other gems in this show, BUT, if you enjoy the occasional Money, Money, this one is a keeper.

Enjoy,
Judge Mac

Listening to the 1st set right now. Nice show so far and most of them were in 1974

Hearing the Truckin' jam from this show on the Dead Hour in 1993 did a lot to make me a Dead fan.

Indeed. GDH #244 from late May of '93. It was Manna from Heaven back in those pre-internet, pre-everything days.
